comment How to add dependency on a Windows Service AFTER the service is installed
@Kip Yes that is what I've gathered, a service "start" event should return quickly -- so service developers will often fire off asynchronous threads and return success/failure right away. In my case, the very first thing the custom service did was establish a connection to the DB. It was trying to connect too soon, even with the dependency (and not failing, just stopping). I was able to work around this by scheduling a batch file which waits 30 seconds and starts the service. On newer operating systems I was able to select "Automatic [Delayed]" for the service and that works great as well.

Does setting up a dependency like this actually work though (with respect to SQL Server)? I've set it up and the service is still attempting to access SQL server before it is ready -- I am not the only one, see: stackoverflow.com/questions/8556808/…

comment Salvaging Mail in the Exchange “Badmail” folder?
Thanks for the reply -- I am talking about outgoing messages. The firewall situation is all worked out and everything is functioning right now. However, everything that was sent out during that period of downtime never made it to the recipients. The only trace of those messages are these bounced messages that ended up in the Badmail folder (they are from postmaster@<servername>.<domain>). Nothing in the maildrop folder or any of the other folders under inetpub/mailroot
